Much better track than Feel It, which was good only in Avira Rmx. Original was terrible. This is fine proggy track...would give around 6/10

Gotta be honest, the vocals are very well-recorded and sits very nice in the mix...the bits during the build and on to about 2.min is really lovely...

But from a "proper trance" perspective or judging the overall music it kinda sucks. From 2.min and onwards it basically sounds like every other 128 whatever you call that style. some call it melodic prog house but its not that melodic to me.

I guess I agree with Daysleeper. Cosmic Gate productions are always spot on. But musically it's a bit boring for me.

At 3:40 it's a bit too much "pop" with all those vocal adlibs and "whoohoo" stuff. Would have preferred it a bit more dreamy. More simple singing-lines, with more delay/reverb.

And I'm extremely tired of those "crunchy" brass-y sounds, like the one on 5:43. They come from the bigroom-EDM scene, where it's milked to death also. Can we come up with something else?

Excellent track and CG will release a vinyl LP with their chapter 2 album when it is released. 10/10 to CG for catering to those of us who only buy the plastic
